Happy 7th birthday Polka Doodles.
As this anniversary is normally called the "7 year itch", the Polka Doodles team have embraced the prickly feeling by scratching that itch and mixing/scratching up some new images ... get the pun? Corny we know but the team have had great fun. So to embrace the “itchy scratch” the Polka Doodles team have thrown caution to the wind and “scratched up” a different kind of birthday celebration.
The birthday celebrations will be running for 2 weeks and each day someone from the Polka Doodles team will be sharing their “mixed/scratched up” image. It’s been all hush hush and secret squirrel too as no one knows who has been busy creating what and when they will be revealing their image... so the Polka Doodles team get to join in the fun too. To add an extra layer of itchy fun, everyone has also been colouring up the new “scratched/mixed up” images, (still not knowing who designed them) and they will be sharing via their blogs and on FaceBook.
We really have scratched things up ... new merged images, no one knows who created what and no one knows when they’ll be sharing them ...!
Please do take the opportunity to visit the Polka Doodles team and see their new digi images because you will find a discount code (or two) along your way that you can use in the Polka Doodles shop
Today is the day I get to reveal the scratched up merged digi that I created. I don't know who will get to colour it up and am excited to see what they've created too, but here is the card I've made using the lovely Lilybug Love Hello character available HERE singly or on the full collection download HERE which I've miniaturised and merged her with toadstools and flying ladybird from the full collection together with a house from the Little Kingdom collection available HERE. I've printed out the digi several times and coloured it with my Graph It markers (listed below) and decoupaged it and then layered it onto a background from the Cherry Blossom Lane collection available HERE and then layered some of the flowers from the Lemonade Fizz Collection available HERE all coloured with my Gansai Tambi paints and then layered with Diamond Stickles glitter glue. The BELIEVE letters are the scrapbook tiles available on the Work & Play Love Collection available as a single download HERE

Here is my card make:

I've used the following:

Daler Rowney Mixed Media paper for the background 
Versa Magic Jumbo Java chalk ink for the edges 
8x8 white card
Graph It Pens - 1170, 1270, 72125, 4145, 4115, 9100, 9009, 5245, 3180, 2170, 7145, 5230
